Bis(2-carbethoxy-5-indolyl) oxide was obtained by cyclization of ethyl pyruvate 4,4′-diphenyloxydihydrazone. 5-Phenoxy-2-carbethoxyindole was also isolated from the reaction products. Saponification of these esters gave the corresponding acids, the thermal decarboxylation of which yielded di(S-indolyl) oxide and 5-phenoxyindole.
